TOLEDO NAMES FIRST BUSINESS OF THE MONTH
Residents and visitors alike can add yet another reason to visit the small coastal town of Toledo. Long known as a mill town and an artists’ colony, an interesting and diverse business mix in downtown is proving to be a boon to the community’s economy. In recognition of local businesses that locate, operate and thrive in the City of Toledo, the Main Street Committee has named “All Things Reptile” as its first Business of the Month.
“All Things Reptile” is owned and operated by LeRae Gay who says that, as her business has grown, she has occupied three different Main Street locations in Toledo. Gay’s offerings include a variety of reptiles, including chameleons, snakes and frogs. She has aquariums, feed, plants and can custom design specialty tanks. “All Things Reptile” has an inventory that is constantly changing so customers are encouraged to visit often to see what’s new in the fascinating world of reptiles. One of Gay’s favorite reptiles is the Bearded Dragon which she says is easy to keep and fun to watch.
Gay offers training for the proper care of the animals she sells, as well as teaching about the right kind of light, food and climate for successful pet ownership. “All Things Reptile” is located at 404 N. Main Street in Toledo and is open Monday-Wednesday from 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., Thursday-Saturday from 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. and Sundays from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. The phone number is 541-270-2552. The Main Street Committee encourages everyone to stop in and check out one of Toledo’s most interesting small businesses.
